What You Can Expect

Brisbane Story Bridge Adventure Twilight Climb

Brisbane Story Bridge Adventure Twilight Climb

Brisbane’s iconic Story Bridge claims a spot on the Queensland Heritage Register and has been celebrated as a local landmark since its completion in 1940. To begin your 2-hour climb, make your way to Kangaroo Point in downtown Brisbane in the early evening. Prepare for the ascent by donning a protective suit and belted harness, and take part in a brief safety training.

Once ready, begin climbing along a series of staircases and platforms with handrails. Listen to audio commentary through a provided headset to learn about the history of the cantilevered bridge and attractions within view. After you make your way along road level, a steep incline takes you to the first of two summit platforms — the highest points on the bridge at approximately 262 feet (80 meters). Pause to take in panoramic views of Brisbane and natural attractions on all sides, including Moreton Bay, the Glasshouse Mountains, Mt Coo-tha and Lamington National Park. 

Descend from the first summit, and walk along a relatively flat section before climbing up to the second peak. As you go, watch the city skyline shift in the changing light of dusk as color fades from the sky and countless lights illuminate the landscape. 

As no cameras are allowed on the climb, a photographer will snap your photo at several vista points throughout the climb; you’ll receive three high-resolution images to take home as a memento of your Story Bridge adventure!

This was a great tour with great views and the tour guide had lots of information for us. I had a great time and would recommend it to anyone in groups or on their own as I was.

This was absolutely awesome! Even for my wife who was not thrilled about being so high in the air, she enjoyed it as well. We felt very safe and well exercised. Our guide was very thoughtful and informative. This was a chance in a lifetime opportunity for my wife and I and we were thrilled with the whole experience.

The twilight climb was excellent!! You'll see both daytime and night time scene within one climb! Our climb leader was very friendly and helpful. He explained very well at safety instruction and at climbing with history and scenery. Everybody was cared, and the leader often asked if there was any questions. One point that all travellers should notice is that do not expect the ferry from Eagle Street Pier to Kangaroo Point. Otherwise you'll end up like us - almost running late!

We had an excellent guide who was very interesting. We completed our walk on a beautiful warm day and a lovely evening, so we really recommend completing it at twilight. This makes a great gift for someone special.
